Pulling Tractor Party – Part 1: Invitation

Both our kids love going to tractor pulls to cheer on our friend’s tractor “The 100 Yard Dash“. So last summer Ms M and I were trying to come up with a theme for her 5th birthday. She wanted another dinosaur birthday. But I really wanted to do something new.

“Mom! What about a tractor pull party?!!!!!”


There are tons of ideas out there for a tractor party (mostly John Deere) and tons of ideas for farm themed parties. But not a lot for a tractor PULL party. But, hey (not hay), we can do it right?!

The invitation was a lot of fun to put together. I used the County Life Cricut cartridge to make the barn and the tractor. I found a great striped paper that made me think of barn wood.

And I think it’s so fun to open the barn to read the rest of the invitation.

Tractor Invitation

The outside text:

Jump in your tractor
and get in gear

XXXX Is turning
FIVE this year.

The inside of the invitation:

Plow on over for some birthday fun!

Planting time will be on Day, Month Date, Time

Join us at the XXXXX Farmstead

R.S.V.P. to Farm Boss NAME PHONE


Um, ok. So that wasn’t very tractor pull-ish, and much more general farm-ish. But it was still tractor-y right? Well, maybe I can get the decorations to be more tractor pull-ish.
